cavour is an awesome store.

@Riva can attest.
One of the best in the net. Their full canvas suits and jackets with Loro Piana fabrics are superior to any Susu I've ever owned. Discounted they're the same as Susu's pricings.

Wanna post some fit pics? Don't particularly like the fit on their model, but maybr they wear better IRL.

Is it just me or do Cavour suits look kind of crap?

Especially with Nordic brands, it's usually a model that looks really unhappy wearing a suit that's perhaps a size too big. Not sure why this is the case.

Suitsupply does marketing better than anyone really, but I think that's part of what you are paying for to a degree.

You're right. I was wrong. Obviously Cavour is to be avoided especially during the 50% off sale.

it is sarcasm. he is rather deadpan.
One of my biggest regrets was recommending Cavour when nobody knows what they're selling due to the ltd product info. Then when they know they're Loro Piana made in Italy soft tailored for $250 I missed getting the goodies.

High quality materials and construction notwithstanding, their aesthetic is quite pedestrian.

It might just be the photos, but to me they look like shapeless blobs. That's a hard pass.

Different demographics. I've donated all my Susus to the employees as I can't withstand their shitty construction. I'd rather take a bland colored but superbly constructed jacket, alter it, then pair it with something exciting underneath.

I'm not really talking about the colour, but fair enough. SuSu's construction is perfectly acceptable from my standpoint, but that's obviously a subjective judgment. The main attraction for me with SuSu (apart from the cost) is I know exactly what I am getting. A brand like Cavour looks to me like much more of a gamble despite the fancy bells and whistles.

That's good, I suppose, but they don't offer long sizes so someone else will have to be the guinea pig.

But seriously, would you buy something that looks like this:

It could be that the model is standing slightly askew but that does not give a good impression. The sleeves and shoulders are a complete mess.
